Video Voices: Girl Debaters Speak Out

Watch participants of a girls' high school debate competition in New York City share their views on the role of women in America. The debaters are participating in a two-week intensive leadership training program from the Bella Abzug Leadership Institute (BALI), which mentors and trains young women to become leaders. Assisting BALI with the debates is Impact Coalition, which specializes in debate and other educational training for urban public high school students.
